• "Here in this world there are thousands of newspapers and magazines reporting the stale, repetitious happenings of this limited space. So for reporting the news of the unlimited spiritual realm, concerning the eternal, ever-fresh Supreme Personality of Godhead, we could publish a newspaper at every second, what to speak of daily."

Ratha-Yatra in Niles, Michigan !?

Here is something very sweet that indicates the mercy of Lord Jagganatha and His devotees.

In south western corner of the state of Michigan lies the tiny town of Niles - population 12,204. Despite the town's relative obscurity some devotees led by His Grace Prema Bhakti das pooled together and enacted a Ratha-Yatra parade through the neighborhood streets.

Here are the ever-merciful and ever-beautiful Sri Sri Nitai-Gauracandra who reside here in Christchurch, New Zealand.

jive purnodaya yatah karunaya ha ha ravair prarthanam he
he krsna krpa-nidhe bhava maha davagni dagdhan janan
trahi trahi mahaprabho sva krpaya bhaktim ni jam dehy alam
maivam gaura harih sada prakurute dinaka-nathah prabhuh

"Having extended His mercy to the living entities beyond what He had ever given before, Gaura Hari, the only Lord and refuge for the wretched, called out with a prayerful plea, 'Hey Krsna! O ocean of Mercy! Protect! Please protect these people! O my master! They are burning in the great forest fire of birth and death. O ocean of mercy, kindly bestow Your service upon them.'" [Srila Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya, Susloka-Satakam, verse 63]

Be mindful of the time zones though. :)

They also have a streaming internet radio station.
